What happened to the discovery channel?

It seems the discovery channel and national geographic channel has become 24 hour 9/11 and Iraq documentaries...did they run out of animal footage? Its the two most depressing channels on tv!

It's probably because it's the week of 9/11...

The discovery channel is pretty much the only thing I watch on TV anymore, and they definitely weren't too heavy on war before 9/11 week.

They're programming these days consists almost entirely of Crappy Afternoon Programming, then Mythbusters, SurvivorMan/Man Vs. Wild, Dirty Jobs, The Deadliest Catch, and those programs about Building shit.

I actually haven't seen anything about 9/11 or Iraq on the Discovery Channel the nights I've watched it this week..Just the same shows as usual for me.

Big Grin

If you think the Discovery Channel is getting away from things, check out the The Learning Channel (TLC). You don't "learn" shit there.

But the execs learned that Learning doesn't equal ratings.

Yes indeed, the Travel Channel is very helpful when planning trips.

I also enjoy the Vegas Do's & Don'ts and the World Poker Tour coverage.

I can't really say anything currently about the Discovery Channel ... it's been removed from our program line-up for about a year now.

BTW ... I love your sig of Sting, Andy & Stewart.

Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, and How It's Made are three of the best shows around.
